About dale debruin

I grew up in Wyoming Michigan, went to a small high school and lived 2 blocks from a small lake where we spent all of our free time swimming, catching fish and turtles and pollywogs. Our vacations were always a week or 2 in the summer at a lakefront cottage on Big Star lake in Baldwin Michigan where I learned to water ski and motorcycle on the trails through the pine tree and fern woods. So it was in my blood. I had to get a place on the water. And I love it.

dale debruin purchased this house in 2012

Why dale debruin chose Nice

This property is very conveniently located in Lucerne, surrounded by all the comforts of home yet when you are on the water front, you feel like you have this incredible lake to yourself. Best bass fishing lake around and wonderful wildlife is so abundant. I love to water ski and almost never have trouble finding some glassy water. Motorcycle trails are abundant as is live music in the summer nearly everyday somewhere on the lake. There's nothing like sitting in the hot tub with your coffee and watching the sun come up and then walking to the end of your dock, getting on your bass boat, pushing a button to lower into the lake and always have a chance for a record bass. Come back and ski, or if the wind is up, pull out the catamaran. Invite friends over for a lakeside BBQ. This property has it all and it's hard to leave.

What makes this house unique

Location is always a big factor in choosing a property and lakefront is the location I wanted. I also saw a challenge in improving the home to make it even more enjoyable.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house during our family getaway Christmas trip to Clear Lake. It had enough room/beds for everyone, 9 adults and a toddler. View of the lake was very nice and we enjoyed it very much. Kitchen was very clean, well maintained and spacious as well as all the bathrooms and bedrooms. Towels were also available. Cooking was easy as pots and pans were available, pantry was handy and enough dishes and utensils for everyone. The house is walking distance to grocery store and kids playing ground and the walk along the road is very nice with the lake on site. We also enjoyed watching the ducks, and the mountains from the backyard. Dale (the owner) was very accessible and quickly answered questions about the property and available amenities prior to our arrival. We all enjoyed our stay. It was great!

California lake getaway in March!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a sports team of 20 guys on a spring break trip. The house was amazing and everything we could have wanted. Right on the lake with a big backyard space. Very communal feel with hottub, pier, grill, sitting area, yard, etc all being right next to each other. Kitchen is very functional and designed well. Enough beds and couches to house pretty much everyone. I had the opportunity to meet Dale the owner and he is such a great guy. He was very friendly and accommodating, and even gave me some fishing tips and tackle! Everything was clean and organized. Towels and sheets were never a problem. The area is perfect, with a Frosty Freeze (burgers and shakes), Subway, and Tower Mart (gas station/convenience store) all under a minute walk from the house right across the street. There were two kayaks for guest use which were amazing to explore the coastline and fish from. The sunsets across the lake from the balcony were to die for. I can not rave about the place more. Thanks so much Dale!

Can't wait to take this trip again!

  • 5 of 5

I could sit in that hot tub overlooking the sunset on the lake for hours! The house had everything we could have wanted and was perfect for hosting. The kitchen is bright and spacious and looks out toward the dock and lake. There is plenty of seating at the bar, dining table and small living room, all offering a gorgeous view. The view from the master bedroom was outrageous. We enjoyed our cup of coffee from the balcony overlooking the calm lake. This house offered a bang for your buck and we will definitely be coming back!

Family getaway for New year eve

  • 2 of 5

We booked this place for 4 couples with kids on New Year weekend . The place is average overall with decent space and view .However, the house had serious issues which the owner didn't bother to tell .

-The Heat system in the house simply does not work and gets uneven distribution of heat . Out of the 4 bedrooms , 3 were freezing throughout the night and the small room in the corner gets so hot and humid that you need to turn the fan on .

- The house is build for big group but the amenities are not designed appropriately , the water heater in the house only provides 1 or 2 gallon of hot water and after that you might have to wait for couple of hours to get the hot water again , else shower with cold water as some of my friends had to do .

- The house is on Highway 20 with lot of highway noise even in the night and the 2 bedrooms facing the freeway have single pane window so you almost feel like you are sleeping on a freeway and hard to get a sound sleep with all the freeway noise .

- We found the owner very finicky about small things after check out and charging us for things that didn't make sense. We were charged for dishes not coming out clean from the dishwasher even though we ran the dishwasher twice and did everything we could do to make the dishes clean, beyond that it is the dishwasher which is not functional and doesn't make sense to charge your customers for that . We also got charged for petty things like some stuff not being on its original place and all. Overall, we found the owner of very complaining nature and not considerate at all for his customers .Be sure to loose some deposit if you book this place , because the owner will pick on some small thing to charge you .

Owner's Response: It's unfortunate that in the rare occasion that an owner books a tenant that causes a significant amount of extra cleaning and repair and replacement, the tenant is allowed to submit a bad review as retaliation, if the owner keeps a part of the security deposit to cover at least some of the costs incurred. To address specific complaints: 1. The heating system is forced air, controlled by the thermostat upstairs, with the vents in each bedroom and game room for equal distribution of heat. (lots of blankets and comforters as well). 2. The house has a 50 gallon water heater. With a large number of people taking long showers, the hot water at some point would need to be renewed, as with any hot water heater. 3. The house is off highway 20 as advertised. All windows in this house are new and all are double paned. 4. The house is supplied with a top quality dishwasher. He threw all of the dirty dishes into the dishwasher, but the door could not even close so dishwasher was not run at all. Half of the dishes needed to be removed just to be able to close the door and allow water to circulate, so the cleaners had to run 2 loads rather than none. 5. Yes he did move major pieces of furniture that he did not put back. Cleaners couldn't move them back so I had to. But I didn't even mention this. 6. The owner's complaining nature and not considerate: He called upon arrival and I stayed on the phone while he opened the lock box, and told them to call anytime if they had any questions or problems. I have a string of 17 emails from him (all positive). A 3 night minimum rental weekend, and I allowed him to rent for only 2 nights. After staying 2 nights, he wanted to extend his stay for another night for $100. I told him he could stay for half the nightly rate. He emailed, "This is a great place. We'd love to stay another night." He requested a noon checkout rather than 11am. I agreed. After their stay he emailed, "Yup, we will return for sure. We loved the place." 7. Charged for things that didn't make sense: This is the 1st tenant I've ever kept even part of the deposit. (with held $100) Cleaners charged me an extra $80. Plastic plant destroyed (replaced). Beak broken off wooden eagle sculpture (not replaceable). Coffee pot left on, cracked pot (replaced). Hot tub headrests removed and thrown in bushes. (clean and reinstall). This wonderful Lakefront Home is one of the best on Clear Lake and I hope you will enjoy a great vacation here in the near future. Dale 650-207-7758

Family days in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was for two nights in September 2014. My family of 10 adults and 4 teens fit into this house splendidly. As described the house has been recently remolded with obvious great care. All facilities in excellent condition. The kitchen Is spacious and airy. We especially enjoyed the neatness and cleanliness of the sleeping areas. The lake view from the upstairs bedroom was spectacular at sunset. Out side on the grass there is plenty of lounging space for us and the local ducks. Many hours spent on the dock hoping for the big one. Our stay was picture perfect and we all hoped to return one day.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

I had my 25th birthday party at this house and it was truly a great time and a great house. The views from the kitchen and master bedroom are amazing and have a great expansive view of the lake. The photos with the ad are spot on and very accurate. Also the number of people the house sleeps is spot on and there are even a few more spots if people don't mind sleeping on couches. The house was very clean when we got there and it was easy to find.

One aspect that made this house really fun was the 2 two-person kayaks in the garage. There are only 2 paddles for the 2 kayaks so only one person can paddle at a time in each kayak. However since no one in my group had a boat of any kind this was a really fun way to enjoy the water and have fun on the lake. The hot tub is a little small, only about 3 adults could fit in if each adult was fully in the water, however there were no issues with that, everyone who wanted to go in the hot tub got to go. There is also a nice lawn behind the house that is nice for sun bathing and being outside.

I had a great time in this house with a bunch of friends however I could easily see it being perfect for a family gathering. There are 4 private bedrooms including the master and the doors to the master bedroom have a stained glass pattern that you can kind of see through, so it would be easy to keep an eye on anyone (such as kids) outside of the bedroom. However I was there with approximately 13 20-something year olds and we had a great time. There was enough room for everyone to have fun and have a place to sleep. Also the brand new kitchen is really nice. We did all our own cooking for the weekend and any utensil we needed was there are there was plenty of room.

Dale the owner is really nice and easy to get ahold of. He was able to answer any questions I had before the weekend and was able to help when I called him after I already got there.
